Kobayashi Akiko => Akiko Kobayashi, Mariko Nagai, Midori Karashima as well as Reimy

Four of a singers belonging to a recording company, Fun House (now BMG Japan): Akiko Kobayashi, Mariko Nagai, Midori Karashima as good as Reimy (小林明子・永井真理子・辛島美登里・麗美) got together to emanate this timely song, “Merry Yuletide To You” in November 1989 as a lane upon their suggested album. The manuscript additionally has a particular chanteuses behaving their own tunes as good prior to a vast get-together in a middle. Written by Nagai as good as Karashima as good as stoical by Karashima, a strain reminds me of a little of those vast gatherings of Western singers for “We Are The World” as good as “Do They Know It’s Christmas?” that took place behind in a 80s. This is a live opening of a song, reduction Mariko Nagai. courtesy of daisycupcake from Flickr … Read entire article »

Kobayashi Akiko => Akiko Kobayashi — Kokoro Midarete:Say It With Flowers (心みだれて)

I consider this would’ve done a undiluted chime for FTD, a American florist smoothness chain. But “Say It With Flowers”was a thesis strain for a Japanese drama, “Kin’youbi ni wa Hana wo Katte”(金曜日には花を買って….Get Me Flowers upon Friday, Will You?) when it was expelled in October 1986 as Akiko Kobayashi’s 4th (and 5th…a 12″) single. The song, stoical by Kobayashi as well as created by Reiko Yukawa(湯川れい子), was never a outrageous strike though it has been enclosed upon each a single of her BEST compilations. The strain is good ol’ schmaltz as well as sophistication…probably good for which 10th anniversary-celebrating couple. As distant as we can remember, along with “Kuchibiru Swing”, we consider Kobayashi has usually sung dual unmitigated jazz pieces, though we consider her voice matches utterly easily with a … Read entire article »

Kobayashi Akiko => Akiko Kobayashi — Kokoro no Mama ni (心のままに)

“Kokoro no Mama ni”(Morning Wish) was Akiko Kobayashi’s(小林明子)2nd album expelled in September 1986. Her entrance manuscript “Fall in Love” finished it up to No. 8 upon a each year rankings though this manuscript didn’t mangle by unfortunately. But afterwards again, this was fundamentally a delay of a light cocktail from which initial album. Of course, a Carpenteresque influences have been in there, so it’s really some-more of a tea-sipping manuscript rsther than than a beer-swilling one. we begin off with a pretension track, created as good as stoical by Kobayashi, which has her honeyed vocals, though compared to a opening suggested lane from her entrance album, “Kokoro no Mama ni”has a somewhat grander sense, nonetheless as a English pretension hints at, it additionally melodically feels similar to waking up upon … Read entire article »

Kobayashi Akiko => Akiko Kobayashi — City of Angels

Having been an Akiko Kobayashi(小林明子) ever given her outrageous entrance hit, “Fall In Love” in 1985, we consider we assimilated a lot of fans marveling during how identical she sounded to a late Karen Carpenter. So, of course, a unavoidable “What If?” subject was asked. Namely, what if Kobayashi as well as a alternative half of The Carpenters, Richard, teamed up? Her staff contingency have mulled this a great prolonged whilst prior to suggesting to Akiko: Staff: Why do not we ask him? Akiko: Uhhh….you know this is Richard Carpenter. Staff: What have we got to lose? Akiko: Well…..Ohhhhhhh-kay. Of course, a upon top of sell is pristine conjecture. we can’t suppose what a genuine review was like, though a outcome was that Kobayashi sent over a demo fasten to Carpenter, as well as he … Read entire article »

Kobayashi Akiko => Akiko Kobayashi — Touch Me Asa Kuru Made (朝くるまで)

   (Regret to surprise we though it looks identical to the powers-that-be have taken down the Kobayashi cover, though greatfully suffer the strange by The Carpenters below. Hopefully, an additional video will be uploaded someday in the future.)      Considering all of the comments which Akiko Kobayashi(小林明子) had been removing about how identical she sounded identical to the late, good Karen Carpenter given her entrance in 1985, it was maybe the foregone end which Kobayashi would plunge into the Carpenters song. So, in January 1988, her 8th single was the cover chronicle of the band’s final Top twenty song, “Touch Me When We’re Dancing” (created by Terry Skinner, J.L. Wallace as well as Ken Bell) which had been expelled in June 1981. Actually, the Carpenters’ chronicle was itself the cover of the strange … Read entire article »

Kobayashi Akiko => Akiko Kobayashi — Shinjitsu (真実)

Akiko Kobayashi’s(小林明子) 2nd single, “Shinjitsu”(Truth) didn’t appear to have as most of an stroke as her entrance of “Fall In Love” did, though this strain from February 1986 is still a prime amongst her fans together with myself. And we once listened it upon an audiotape of a single of her concerts, as well as it sounds identical to a excellent balance to finish a dusk on. Composed by Kobayashi herself as well as created by Takashi Matsumoto(松本隆), “Shinjitsu”is a light happy strain about a lady who is only chomping during a bit to take which night sight to encounter her lover. Unlike a slight clarity of terror that’s infused in a lyrics as well as strain of Akina Nakamori’s(中森明菜) “Kita Wing”(北ウィング), a strain which seems to share a identical low-pitched … Read entire article »
